As the only packaged balloon product designed in association with a portable helium tank and available to home party consumers, the packs feature one of the following:
- balloon bouquet packs, available in two sizes, including a combination of shaped and round foil balloons and latex balloons;
- column packs, including foil shape balloons and linking latex balloons to create two, six-foot-tall columns;
- linking balloon packs, including linking latex balloons to create one eight-foot-tall arch or two balloon streamers.
“Balloon Time Create-A-Party Balloon Packs are the first balloon products designed to work with a portable helium tank available to home party consumers, providing a one stop shop for their themed balloon decorations,” said Dusty McClintock, Worthington Cylinders’ vice president of sales and marketing. “Balloon Time is continually seeking opportunities such as this to offer consumers the convenience to customize their party decorations and inflate their balloons in the comfort of their own homes.”
“The Balloon Time themed balloon packs are an easy way for party-planners to create customized decorations at home, from traditional balloon bouquets to dramatic columns, arches and streamers,” said Penny Warner, Balloon Time’s party planning expert. “The balloons are simple to inflate, and the packs make it easy to create unique decorations for any party.”
The Balloon Time Create-A-Party Balloon Packs are the result of a collaboration between Balloon Time and Betallic, an industry-leading manufacturer of foil and latex balloons. The St. Louis-based company was the first to market with innovations such as MegaLoons®, Google Eyes™, LINK-O-LOON®, Linky Shapes™, Ribbons & Bows™ and Shooting Stars™.
Average retail cost of the Balloon Time Create-A-Party Balloon Packs will be $7.99. The products will be available starting in April 2010 at select mass market and party goods retailers nationwide.
Balloon Time offers a family of helium balloon kits that include an easy-to-use helium-filled tank, latex or foil balloons and ribbon in one convenient, lightweight, portable box. Balloon Time kits can be found at large retail chains, party goods and grocery stores in both the United States and Canada.
